The third time was the charm for Kansas. "We were just a step slow to loose balls".

The Longhorns, who survived a tough game against Iowa State in the opening round, misfired on their first nine shots, went almost 6 minutes without a point and allowed the Red Raiders to roar to an early double-digit lead that they maintained much of the first half.

That's when the Jayhawks finally caught fire, going on an 18-4 charge to turn things around.

He was the Yellowjackets coach in 2004 when Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State met in the Final Four in San Antonio.

The game wasn't without drama.

The Kansas State Wildcats will take on the Kansas Jayhawks in the Big 12 Conference semifinal round on Friday, start time at 7:00 PM ET, at Scottrade Center, St Louis, MO.

No. 1-seed Kansas topped No. 8-seed Oklahoma State Thursday, 82-68, while No. 4-seed Kansas State advanced by way of a 66-64 overtime win over No. 5-seed TCU. Young hit all three shots from the foul line, but didn't make it to there again, marking the fourth time in 31 games he's attempted less than four free throws.

Devonte Graham added 10 points, four rebounds and nine assists for the top-seeded Jayhawks (25-7), who were swept by the Cowboys (19-14) in the regular season but broke through when it mattered. Robinson started it with a free throw and ended it with a jumper, and Williams added five points during an 11-0 spurt that gave the Horned Frogs a 43-34 lead with 14½ minutes to go.

Syracuse received an at-large bid into the 2016 NCAA Tournament despite a 71st-ranked RPI. Game 8 Winner (ESPN) 6 p.m. "They're a No. 1 seed for a reason and they showed it today". He did, though won the Big 12 Freshman of the Year award and targets the Big 12 Tournament honour.

Ankara said it might also extend its aggression further east to Manbij unless the PYD/PKK leaves the strategically located city. The military intervention came after the U.S. said it would set up a 30,000-strong militant border force at Turkish doorstep.


In addition to Newman's 22 points, three teammates joined him in double-figure scoring.

Young got off to such a fast start this season that even at just 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, it appeared his offensive talent could potentially offset other concerns, such as his ability to guard on the ball and whether his slender frame could handle National Basketball Association punishment.

It is debatable whether the Sooners will make it into the NCAA Tournament.

As a team, the Wildcats connected on 46.4 percent (26-of-56) in the game, including 17 points off of 14 Horned Frog turnovers. Malik Newman scored 30 points on 11-of-15 shooting, including a 4-of-6 effort from three-point range.

The Longhorns erased a double-digit deficit to eliminate the reigning conference tournament champs. Now, the in-state rival Jayhawks and Wildcats will meet Friday in the semifinals.

According to oddsmakers, West Virginia is favored in this game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -2 points against the Red Raiders.

The Mountaineers were careless in their own right with 16 turnovers. They'd only done it twice before in history and the last time was 35 years ago. WVU senior point guard Jevon Carter said of the biggest challenges when facing Baylor.

West Virginia will now turn its attention to Texas Tech after the programs split the regular-season series. They will need to rebound the way they did in the last meeting against the 'Cats. Kansas' effective field goal percentage was their biggest advantage over Oklahoma State.
